    I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior management has a great vision and a plan to get there; salaries are good; work life balance is good

    Cons

    Some middle management is questionable in their duties and ability to perform; the department I worked in seemed to favor females and tended to be a bit sexist in that regard

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to all levels of the company not just the top tier

    Pros

    Industry-competitive pay
    Very little routine tasks or monotony
    Employees are recognized for their work; credit is given when and where it's due
    Not just a desk job, regional responsibilities allow you to get out of the office regularly

    Some travel required (mostly day travel)
    Personnel training is mostly handled by EHS; training department doesn't actually train
    EHS is a lean department, sometimes work load is heavy

    Better communication between EHS and Ops directors
    Training should be handled by training department

    Great working environment. Very substantial training with lunch provided. Your encouraged to ask questions. Everyone is very helpful and wants to see you advance and succeed.
